The Company is committed to providing a working environment in which employees are able to realise their full potential and to contribute to business success irrespective of their gender, race or disability. This is a key employment value to which all employees are excepted to give their support.

In order to create conditions in which this goal can be realised, the Company is committed to identifying and eliminating discriminatory practices, procedures, and attitudes throughout the organisation. The Company expects employees to support this commitment and to assist in its realisation in all possible ways.

Specifically, the Company aims to ensure that no empolyee or job applicant is discriminated against, either directly or indirectly, on the grounds of sexual orientation, gender, race, colour, nationality, ethnic or racial origins, marital status, religion/religious belief or disability. This commitment applies to all the aspects of employment outlined below.

  • Recruitment and selection, including advertisements, job descriptions, interview and selection procedures
  • Training
  • Promotion and career development opportunities.
  • Terms and conditions of employment, and access to employment related benefits and facilities.
  • Grievance handling and the application of disciplinary procedures
  • Selection for redundancy

Equal opportunities practice is developing constantly as social attitudes and legislation change. The Company will keep its policies under review and will implement changes where these could improve equality of opportunity. This commitment applies to all the Company's employment policies and procedures, not just those specifically connected with equal opportunity.
